Laurana came to me in the old LTPK 2 as one of my very first minis in 2010 or so. This set even had the old Pro Paints in it, almost all of wich gave up on me a long time ago. Only Ruddy Flesh and the Copper Metallic Paint are left, both are still among my workhorse paints.
While Laurana's companion Tsuko was painted up fairly quickly, I struggled with painting her forever. First the scroll would not come out right, and then the eyes turned out to be a major problem for me - you see, the pupils of the eyes are sculpted, so my usual strategies didn't work for her.
But after years and years on my shelf of shame she's finally done! Once I got past the scroll and the eyes she was actually a joy to paint. Also, I really like the expressive pose.
So here she is, c&c very welcome!

This was an exercise in improvisation. People like to use the google hangouts to have painting sessions. But, all my painting stuff normally lives in the next room away from the computational machine. But some of it had gotten waylaid and dropped off in the wrong room so I decided to see if I could manage something. @knarthex was in the hangouts painting tiny CamelFlag patterns on tiny NATO troopers at the same time.
Here is Galladorn getting a bath in Simple Green diluted with water. The plastic bag is the type I use mostly for sorting Miniatures. File this under: how to mess with gooey-green cleaners and stuff near expensive equipment.
Next he got buried in paper towels to dry off.

My first Reaper Forum post! Please give constructive criticism if you have any suggestions!
At first I was going to make this dark priest Caucasian, but then decided to go for a “Abdul Alhazred” feel, complete with human flesh scroll and inscribed in blood.
I am glad to be on the forum and will post more on my extended “sinister graveyard cult” that I am working on!

So I had grand plans for this mini; washes on the scales and NMM on the headpiece, but alas neither of those came to pass.
Like usual, washes hate me, so after a wash attempt that ruined my previous effort at painting the scales, I ended up meticulously painting and shading each scale. I did successfully glaze on the scales at the very end for shading, so i call that a win.
Moving on to my grand NMM plan. After painting every scale I was pretty sick of the mini, and it sat untouched for month. Then I had an incident of pouring way too much gold paint into my wet pallet by accident, and used that as an excuse to just finish the mini.
Here is Galladon that I finally finished up. His WIP is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64680-77054-galladon-bones/?hl=galladon
He was missing a hand when I received him so a little searching through a friend's bits box provided a replacement. He is supposed to look like the runes are magically appearing on the scroll as he chants. Not sure I pulled it off but I like it anyway.
This was my first attempt at OSL.
I placed him on a larger base and used greenstuff to make a stone floor. It was a little empty looking so I made some more scrolls and sheets of paper. My husband has claimed him. If he ever wants a familiar, there is still enough room to add one to the base.
This figure would have benefited from a light box perhaps as it is hard to see his face under that hat. He does have a face, with eyes...that I painted while I said really bad words!
Thanks for looking!
